My Cherished Goal

Who, in love, will’nt vie my eminence to attain
If my destiny is cross and chain, why must I complain?

Know thyself my heart had urged and a journey I set at
I’m in quest of no one else, for my own return I wait

At no time, I aimed to win a reward or recompense
A profound treasure of love I have that freely I dispense

Wounds like flowers pink and red are blooming everywhere
My heart is the only garden having spring in its sphere

The nightingale, in the pangs of love, perhaps has his share
His perception of my anguish is thus beyond compare

The path of loyalty is having proof of my footprints fixed
Oozing blood of my abscessed feet that every thorn has licked

The sky has always been Yamin my vision’s cherished goal
Earthly however may be my body and my soul

    wow, love that contrast between Yamin and the body and soul as earthly. Especially in the middle part some outstanding imagery!
